2020 ITA Bridge Award

The fifth annual ITA Bridge Award honors both insurance IT leaders and their counterparts on the business side. Business opportunities are sometimes lost and IT implementations fail when leaders from IT and the business side are unable to collaborate effectively and “bridge” the gap between technology and business. The ITA Bridge Award will be presented to both the IT leader and the business executive or executives that have demonstrated a clear understanding of what each side can do for the other. Nominations can be made by the insurance companies, software solution providers, and industry consultants.

Nominations Accepted for 2020 ITA Bridge Award, deadline for nominations is February 15,2020.
